Corrective Measures. After the surface is thoroughly hardened, rub down the finish thoroughly and then apply
another finish coat.
Characteristics. Wrinkling of a paint coat is evidenced by the paint film gathering in small wrinkles.
Probable Causes. Wrinkling may be caused by the application of an excessively thick coat, or by a failure to
brush out the paint properly. Wrinkling may also be caused by too much drier in the paint. Paints which have been
excessively thinned with oil and applied thickly are also subject to wrinkling.
Corrective Measures. Sand off the wrinkles with rough sandpaper and paint with properly thinned paint which
does not have an excessive amount of drier or oil in it. In cases of excessive wrinkling, strip off the old coats and repaint.
Wrinkling in acrylic lacquer may be prevented by adding acrylic lacquer retarder.
